喔哦~~~真是炫酷。 BIG和纽约时代广场联盟以及Flatcut ,Local Projects , Zumtobel celebrate等多方合作, 推出了这个与人流,空气,触摸互动的,安装在时代广场以庆祝情人节的大红心。 BIG ♥ NYC高10英尺,400根透明的亚克力管内嵌led灯形成一个在风中摇曳跳动的红心, 当人们触摸心形雕塑一旁的传感器,心就会变得更亮。 设备由奥地利照明公司Zumtobel慷慨捐赠。

纽约时代广场的Tim Tompkins认为此举可以让更多的情侣到时代广场庆祝情人节, 他们也会邀请美国各地的夫妇到此公开宣布他们的爱情。 这个大红心就是情人节的象征,在整个2月都会发出爱之光芒。 过去四年,每年时代广场都会一年一度主办公共艺术雕塑以庆祝情人节, 2012年的庆祝是2月6日到29日在杜菲广场举行。 “心与时代广场联系关系是:人和光————-人越多,光越强。” Bjarke Ingels, 创始人,合伙人, BIG.

“这是一个与人互映的终端,人们抱住它或者与其他人接触,都会让心更快的跳动和发亮, BIG♥NYC在地球上人体能量最活跃的地区进行反应。” Daniel Kidd, 项目负责人, BIG.

BIG + Times Square Alliance + Flatcut + Local Projects and Zumtobel celebrate the Valentine’s Day with an interactive heart installation at Times Square, New York utilizing the flow of people, air and touch to bring the heart to life.

“BIG♥NYC,” a 10-foot tall glowing heart sculpture consists of 400 transparent, LED lit, acrylic tubes donated generously by the Austrian lighting company Zumtobel. The transparent tubes refract the lights of Times Square, creating a cluster of lights around the heart. The hovering heart will appear to pulsate as its tubes sway in the wind. When people touch a heart-shaped sensor, the heart will glow brighter and beat faster as the energy from their hands is converted into more light.

“What better place for couples to celebrate love and public art than in the heart of Times Square – this year, we’re inviting couples from across America and New York to come to Times Square and publicly declare their love in front of the beautiful “BIG♥NYC” which will glow brighter on Valentine’s Day as a symbol of our month-long celebration of love.” Tim Tompkins, President, Times Square Alliance. Over the last four years, the Times Square Alliance has hosted an annual public art sculpture to celebrate Valentine’s Day. This year’s 2012 Times Square Valentine is on display at Duffy Square from February 6 –29.

“The heart reflects what Times Square is made of: people and light – the more people, the stronger the light,” Bjarke Ingels, Founder & Partner, BIG. “Like a daisy chain of human contact, the more people who hold hands or make contact with others while touching the heart, the brighter and faster the heart will pulse. The “BIG♥NYC” is an indicator of human energy in one of the most energized places on earth.” Daniel Kidd, Project Leader, BIG.
